DevTnT 5 - SlickEdit Gadgets for Visual Studio

The SlickEdit Gadgets for VS is a collection of more or less nice to have features the dev guys from SlickEdit give away for free. They integrate with VS 2005 & VS 2008.

It consists of four parts:

Editor improvements
  • Line ruler - highlights the line where the cursor is.
  • Indentation guide - a line that highlights the current line's indentation.
  • Auto-copy selection - allows to auto-copy text selected with the mouse. (as known from irc clients)
  • Editor graphics - put images and animated graphics as your editor background.

The "Command Spy" tool

Tracks all commands you execute in Visual Studio and lists them with key-bindings configured to the certain command.

The "Data Object Analzyer" tool

Shows the data and data type that is currently "copied" to the clipboard.

SLOC reporting

Generates a Lines-of-Code report indicating the rate between source code, comments and white spaces.
